Hippopotamuses love water, which is why the Greeks named them the "river horse." Hippos spend up to 16 hours a day submerged in rivers and lakes to keep their massive bodies cool under the hot African sun. Hippos are graceful in water, good swimmers, and can hold their breath underwater for up to five minutes. However, they are often large enough to simply walk or stand on the lake floor, or lie in the shallows. Their eyes and nostrils are located high on their heads, which allows them to see and breathe while mostly submerged. Hippos also bask on the shoreline and secrete an oily red substance, which gave rise to the myth that they sweat blood. The liquid is actually a skin moistener and sunblock that may also provide protection against germs. At sunset, hippopotamuses leave the water and travel overland to graze. They may travel 6 miles (10 kilometers) in a night, along single-file pathways, to consume some 80 pounds (35 kilograms) of grass. Considering their enormous size, a hippo's food intake is relatively low. If threatened on land hippos may run for the water—they can match a human's speed for short distances. Hippo calves weigh nearly 100 pounds (45 kilograms) at birth and can suckle on land or underwater by closing their ears and nostrils. Each female has only one calf every two years. Soon after birth, mother and young join schools that provide some protection against crocodiles, lions, and hyenas. #hippo #hippopotamus #tanzania #tanzaniaparks #natgeotravel #natgeowild #nature #safari #africansafari #africanadventure #tripofalifetime #photography

Picking up the trail - Kanha National Park !! Nov 2016 !! It was near evening and and alarm calls from langurs and sambar in the distance signaled the probable movement of a predator ! Hence the speedy rush of the safari vehicles in that direction ! The tiger was probably present in the thick of the jungle, but did not emerge even after a long wait, probably it settled down again. What I tried to capture here was the motion in the safari vehicle, following up on another one ahead .....gives u the sense of rush as u see it in fullscreen !! #natgeotravellerindia #natgeotravel #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeoindia #natgeowild #landscape #landscapes #motion #safari #kanhanationalpark #kanha #nationalpark #wildlifesanctuary #instagram #instagood #instatravel #wildlife #canon #canonglobal #canonphotography #canon_photos #incredibleindia #500px #lonelyplanetindia

Baby meerkats (Suricata suricatta) or pups as they are known will spend the first few weeks of their lives underground in burrows. After a few weeks these pups will emerge from the burrow and begin to learn by observing and mimicking adult behaviour, though adults also engage in active instruction.

Monarch butterfly The monarch butterfly or simply monarch (Danaus plexippus) is a milkweed butterfly (subfamily Danainae) in the family Nymphalidae. Other common names depending on region include milkweed, common tiger, wanderer, and black veined brown. It may be the most familiar North American butterfly, and is considered an iconic pollinator species.Its wings feature an easily recognizable black, orange, and white pattern, with a wingspan of 8.9–10.2 cm (3½–4 in). The viceroy butterfly is similar in color and pattern, but is markedly smaller and has an extra black stripe across each hindwing. In both caterpillar and butterfly form, monarchs are aposematic—warding off predators with a bright display of contrasting colors to warn potential predators of their undesirable taste and poisonous characteristics. Large larvae are able to avoid wasp predation by dropping from the plant or by jerking their bodies. Aposematism Monarchs are foul-tasting and poisonous due to the presence of cardenolide aglycones in their bodies, which the caterpillars ingest as they feed on milkweed. By ingesting a large amount of plants in the genus Asclepias, primarily milkweed, monarch caterpillars are able to sequester cardiac glycosides, or more specifically cardenolides, which are steroids that act in heart-arresting ways similar to digitalis. #animalkingdom #naturephotography #naturalworld #naturelovers #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifegeographic #natgeowild #wildlifephotographs #naturegram #planetearth #animals #animalphotos #wildlife #amazing #beautiful #photooftheday #uniqueanimals #awesome #picoftheday  #conservation #naturelovers #wildlifephotography #visualsoflife #cute  #weirdandwonderful  #instanature  #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_seekers

Hippo bull that was relaxing a few meters from our boat - after a while he decided that we were a bit too close for comfort.

Urban antelopes | Nilgais I found while roaming the outskirts of Gurgaon. Nilgais are the largest and probably most widely distributed amongst Indian antelopes. #nilgai #antelope #antelopesofinstagram #gurugram #haryana #urbanwildlife #wildlife #mammals #animal #wildlifephotography #photo #photography #delhi #ncr #nature #naturephotography #natgeo #natgeowild #instawild #india #incredibleindia #canon #canonphoto
